Re: GAS Claims Another Victim!1
Very thin 80's necks typically develop cracks there from a mix of weather and owner incompetence. Wood expands and contracts with changes in temperature and humidity, sometimes leaving the locking nut bolts a little loose. Owners tighten up their nuts (hey, who doesn't? ), and the neck cracks when the wood gradually expands. You'd rather have the cracks run up towards the tip of the headstock than towards the fretboard or down the neck, but as long as you don't mess too much with the nut you should be ok. Again, this happens a lot with thin Wizard style necks, so lots of Ibanez and Rich owners have seen these. I think you'll be fine.
